The Top Ten

He is one of best rhymers of all time. Listen to rap god and you will see who is really the best
Definitely the best rapper of 2013-2014. nas is a better rapper overall though


Eminent is the best no question about
That was from victor eric clay junior

2Kendrick Lamar
It's early in the year to tell who's the best. But if this year is anything like last year, Kendrick will more than likely be making some of the larger impacts on hip-hop. This list shouldn't involve people like Eminem or Nas. They've already been through the ring and proven their skills and will forever be known as some of the best to ever do it. Eminem & Nas don't have to make any more impact on Hip-Hop because they've already made their impact.
He will dominate this year especially after not winning a Grammy that should set him off even more
Kendrick is dope as hell and a great lyricst. I'm really glad Drake isn't on this list.
Kendrick is always laying down rhymes, and beats you can't stop listening to.

Drake is a lyrical genius, his metaphors are constantly stuck in my head.
Drake is the best and there is no question about it
Best Rapper to walk Earth

4J. Cole
Cole is the best mainstream lyricist we have today (you can swap Kendrick and cole for the 1 & 2 spots, doesn't matter) plus he's a great producer. He can do it all, he stays consistent. I've never heard a bad verse/song from this guy, he's gonna be here for a long time building a great legacy.
I have just recently found out about J. Cole and I am already really interested and I wanna buy all his music he is really good this rank is good for him
Cole is a fantastic rapper and producer

5Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne should be third he rocks 😏
Lil Wayne aka. The best rapper alive
I for one am a fan of Wezzy and I think he should be number 1. He to me is better than Eminem
Weezy is the best of them all...

6Kanye West
Kanye should be in the top 3 his music is way better than 2 chains and lil Wayne because unlike them his music makes sense and doesn't repeat itself with the same 1 word the whole time his music also has meaning unlike 2 chains and lil Wayne who rap about nothing
Not after what he did to taylor swift


What Jay-z should be second he's awesome at rapping
Should be up there
He may be at number 7 now but he will rise he can get to number 2 he is great I love D.O. A

82 Chainz
2 chains is past hiz prime. Should be retired rite now
2 Chainz is awesome he should be higher than #5

MGK is a newcommer but hands down will one day be as great as Eminem.
MGK is better than Eminem
I tink he is a good rapper but he needs to put in a lot of work to become the best. THe best song I've heard from him was wildboy

10Kid Cudi
Hear his new album
Kid cudis music you can relate too so much and he's better than all these rappers on the list because he is unique he does his own style of music and makes it work none of these rappers could ever dream of being as dynamic as cudi period.
Cudi has been the best since his first album. He's just too mellow so peoples these days don't know him. Is really good though
Kid Cudi is the best people are just standoffish to hear music they can really relate to

The Contenders

11Juicy J
I like the rap part in Dark Horse that he sang. it's my favorite part in the song!

12Tyler, the Creator
He's an amazing rapper
Tyler is awesome and watch LOITER SUAD
Tyler on there an its hallarious

1350 Cent
He's been here since the beginning and is considered one of the most powerful rappers in history

I think Macklemore Is amazing he writes his own songs his songs are always in the charts and he is great I concert
Macklemore is one of the best and most inspirational rappers I have heard.
Macklemore does not deserve to be here, he's a goofy white kid who dosnt know how to rap. There are a lot better rappers out there then him. He honestly sucks.
More comments about Macklemore

Too good not to be on top ten.

16Nicki Minaj
What the hell is this doing in this list? I think someone wanted to add this in the Worst Rappers list and a mistake happened and put a key or two keys wrong and Nicki Minaj was added in this list.

Come on people you have to recognize the future of rap Logic is the future of rap listen to his music he will be number one in the next year
Logic is better than half of these guys above him. He really has a story in raps and his album will show you too.
He should be on top ten hardcore. If you listen to rap, you need to listen to him.


Top ten for sure man you have to recognize the meaning of his songs he is the future of rap

Kid ink is the best hands table flipped have you guys heard he'll and back and Nevada gave a f### you would probably change you minds then.
The best rapper of my whole life!
Most trillest rapper in the 21 century

35Rick Ross
I don't really like Deadmau5 that much, but will go to their show anyway to see Rick as the opener.
Next year's world tour with him being the opening act for Deadmau5 should really help increase his popularity.
He is the best rapper for our generation

36A$AP Rocky

54Jon Connor
This whole list is a joke without Connor at like #1 or 2... depends on how Shady's doing. So far this year Connor wins with 1 freestyle and a mixtape. Quit sleepin on him.

Top Dawg's newest member, he's still the underdog at their camp. He's gotta shine brighter than his TDE brothers doubt he'd get to Kendrick's level but DAAMN Cilvia Demo was a solid SOLID album
